Most Overrated Black CelebritiesA list of the most overexposed and overrated African American celebs.
The Top Ten
American media tries so hard to make her a Queen and it looks ridiculous. She would be nothing without family support and countless commercial. She is ZERO personality who copies other artists all the time. Nothing she does is her own. What a FAKE! - Magnolia
She's beautiful, can sing and dance. But don't force me to make her out to be a great songwriter (i.e., "Bootilscious", "Check On It", "Upgrade U") or a serious actress. If she wasn't pretty, we wouldn't be interested.
She is an ugly fat beast that can't sing without autotune. Her boulder thighs that spread open are vile.
She can sing, but she looks like a turtle.
hey guys, did you even hear her live singing? She sounds like my nightmare. Rihanna should be no.1 in this list. She's real NO Talent! - Alexandr
She's pretty... But she just has an nice accent when she "sings" and did I forget to say that she's pretty? She was better when she first came out, but now, I don't like her stuff at all. It seems like she's in the illuminati and she is an AVERAGE SINGER.
Hideous as a face like an old lady and a down syndrome forehead. She is fugseriously
She can't even write songs.
She was good when she started her career and she was a powerhouse singing songs like Vision of Love, Emotions, Dreamlover, Hero, I Don't Wanna Cry and Prisoner, but after the disaster known as "Honey" happened her music started going down in quality and so did her voice. - DaWyteNight
She is overrated, but at least she did not heavily rely on sex to become famous. That sets her apart from several other recent, famous female singers.
I think she's mostly overhyped because she don't look black.
Even wit tons of surer you cann9ot make tis ugly face attractive. hideous narcissist and cow.
Quite overrated - DaWyteNight
Always hated this stupid slut with a passion. - RnBLover
Cardi-B has terrible morals. She's graceless, negative and only negative and unnecessary things come out of her mouth. Very problematic and has probably offended pretty much everyone by know. She is the Spanish equivalence to Azealia Banks but worse. But Cardi isn't black so she shouldn't even be on this list.
Played the 'i'm black and abused' card to make millions out of ppls emotions...the real victims of racism and child abuse still not even in the light
Oprah, just come out of the closet already.
No real talent. Her acting is mediocre, she isn't funny either.
Yeah he ain't all that, his rapping ain't that special and only people who know little about rap call him one of the best lyricists. Rap music has just gone down in quality so much starting in the early 2000's that when people hear a half way decent rapper they call him the best. DMX is a more lyrical and better version of 50. - DaWyteNight
50 cent is worth 10 cents and cmon will smith made me like him in I am ledgend - djperth
Go to hell he's underrated
They don't have the dirtbag K. west in the list
Weezy f baby, and the f is for overrated
Racist, sexist, and is not very good at rapping with! To add even more, he is married to kim kartrashian!
He was good up until he sacrificed his own mother for fame and married a stupid kardashian!
Most ignorant arrogant celeb.
He is despicable in every way.
She is ok... (but just look at her face in that picture! )
She is a stupid ho - DaWyteNight
She should be in the top 3 of this list. Plus, I don't get why Chris Brown, O.J. Simpson, and Bill Cosby are on this list. Those guys became more hated than liked.
Not that great of a rapper, I get much more out of J Cole and Joey Bada$$ than I ever could from this overrated watered down mainstream sellout. - DaWyteNight
That whole comment is true. The guy was also a steroid user.
Why did he get so much credit for doing something that several other boxers had done? At least the boxers that defeated Julian Jackson, Sonny Liston, John Mugabi, Roberto Duran, Gerald Mcclellan, or Earnie Shavers were better pound-for-pound boxers than Buster Douglas. Shavers fought a young Larry Holmes. Tyson didn't. Also, Tyson fans had used the 'he was past his prime' excuse for his losses, even though Holyfield and Lewis were past their prime when they fought him.
He's too overrated by people that aren't casual boxing fans.
murderer... that's what he's a celebrity for. - JESSIEMEN
past celebrity current double murderer - Music
He's in his 50s now. He does look like he crossed that line several years earlier.
I'm surprised he's not over 50.
Nobody knows if he's gay beyond a reasonable doubt.
Illuminati power keeps people like him going!
To 3anegroes, none of those people you mentioned got far by themselves. They got far because of people with bad taste. Do you think that Lil Wayne or Nicki Minaj got far based on talent? Anyone with good taste would know that the answer is an absolute NO.
OK he didn't write his own lyrics thts y I'm voting for him... but seriously guys, Jay-Z? Beyonce? Will Smith? 50? They all have a natural talent and you guys have no respect for them. theyve got farther by themselves then youll ever be - 3anegroes
or whatever he's calling himself these days. Thinks he's gods gift to the black world!! Ha! think again!
this idiot thinks he's the stuff, you are not all that!
Regardless of the role, he's always the Fresh Prince to me. A clown!
He is one of the worst actors in the world and is always a smart ass.
He's a clown
Hhe is so ugly is eyes are retarded too far apart andh is wife is a les. e looks like he has fetal alcohol syndrome
She's not as overrated as she used to be. It's probably because her looks, the main thing that made her famous, is going away. Also, she didn't deserve that Oscar.
How was she not on this list already? I had to include her on this list.
Not so much anymore. Now she's trying hard to remain relevant.
I get that she supposed to be great because there weren't many black models but other than that she seems like an awful person I watched America's top model she's just a my way or no way bullheaded person I remember years ago she came out with the song and once again in that interview she didn't think anybody who helped her she just kept running her mouth about herself and how she feels and why she had to do it put accents over the she in had she is seems like a real bad person yet people love her because she's black and because she's a model and there weren't that many black models at the time she came out so it sucks
She's beautiful. That's the one great thing she got going for her.
I doubt Tyra is truly overrated. She had several projects that failed.
She's so clueless and self-absorbed. - tarot_contralto
Oh, PLEASE! Somebody just impeach him already!
He's a glood guy really... eh if they don't care what they did I don't care about my spelling.
I didn't know gorillas were so ugly they look cute in the mountains.
He’s still a clown.
Stupid,retarded,and steriotype are 3 things that some to mind when thinking about Ludacris.He has no flow and awful lyrics.Clearly one of the most overrated rappers of all time not even top 100 good.
Well, what can you say about a guy who refers to himself as "Luda"?
I actually like her, but she needs to do more substantial acting roles instead of riding on the cotail of "That's So Raven." I have faith in you Rae.
She isn't black she is biracial and that is the only reason she was on the Cosby show. Bill Cosby thinks he is white
The only black celebrity who should not be on tis list.
It's very dumb that his fans treat him like he's a devastating boxer when he didn't even score a knockout in many of his big fights. While Rocky Marciano was overrated, at least Marciano showed that he was a devastating boxer. Marciano did not play 'keep away' in his fights, and unlike what Mayweather did with Shane, Miguel, and Manny, Marciano did not wait for his best opponents to be past their best days before fighting them. Also, Oscar and Castillo were the real winners when they fought Mayweather, the most overrated boxer in history.
Mayweather's best moment in the ring was when the wrestler known as the Big Show threw him out of the ring.
He's fine as hell. But his acting sucks, especially "Daybreak."
I like her, but I don't get it.
He had one classic album, one good album, and 3 weak albums. His diehard fans don't know anything about hip-hop cause rakim and nas are way better. And he had the vocabulary of a 6 year old with down syndrome. The most overrated black celebrity of all time is Tupac Shakur.
Im a fan myself but best rapper of all time? I don't think so. Great rapper with a classic (me against the world)and some okay albums but at the end of the day if he didn't die he would never get Greatest of all time talk. - ChrisHenry
2pac was a pretty good rapper. He wasnt the greatest or even close to the greatest. I take Kool G Rap, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Nas, Jay-Z, Common, AZ, Scarface and about 30 others before I would get to 2pac. - Chris-1
The epitome of overrated, right here, buddy!
I found it unbelievable that The Band was not featured on here. Not only is the best concert documentary of all time dedicated to them, but Americana, Country, and Rock will be indebted from their timeless sound. You wanna know who claims The Band as an influence? The Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Costello, Elton John, Phish, and Pink Floyd, as well as modern artists like Eric Church, Drive-By Truckers, Chris Stapleton, Band of Heathens, The Hold Steady, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, and Grace Potter. Most artists in modern guitar-driven music were influenced by The Band or were influenced by someone else who was influenced by The Band. Not to mention, their timing was perfect: they were together long enough to be prolific without falling prey to eventual mediocrity. The Band is the greatest band of all time in my opinion, but even if they aren't your #1, you can't deny the influence that they've had on music. - wrstevenson34
I don't get him either. But oh well.
Boom, boom, clap! Haha!
No you did not! Oh sorry, but who put him up here? The rest is understanding but... Bill?
Famous for ruining Whitney!
Hasn't made a song in years. Yet & still she is on everyone's blog site. Like the old Whit. This new Whit doesn't tickle my fancy. But after dumping Bobby Brown, maybe she'll make a good comeback. Hell to the yeah!
How long has this comment been on this website? Whitney Houston passed. And she is an inspiation! Sure she did drugs but she had a beautiful voice!
Grating, tuneless, howling crack-skank. - unclejoe1917
Hshe ad an ugly face. An h uge jaw and beady little eyes and she was a narcissist. not to mention a crack addict who gets dentures at 40? a I'm lad te witch is dead.
The question: Can he say a joke without being loud?
A loud and screeching voice, he needs to shut up!
The BIGGEST FRAUD in entertainment history. He made people think that he was a great man. What he did when he wasn't singing showed that he was a horrible person that used music to hide that.
I used to have respect for him until they showed proof that he was a child molester. It's ignorant that anyone would respect him after that. How successful someone was does not excuse the very bad things they did. What he did was way worse than what bill cosby or bernie madoff had done.
There are people that said he changed pop music. It sure wasn't for the better, since his stupid music inspired pop acts such as britney spears, one direction, justin bieber, the backstreet boys, and several other stupid pop acts. Booo!
Overrated or not, I still LOVE him either way.
I was a beautiful 16 yr old I saw her on vogue and thought " the cow face from the Elmer's glue bottle- ew! " she is so ugly even with all the makeup hideous face! cow face look it up in the dictionary and Naomi Campbell is there.
The embodiment of a whore!
What the hell! Who put him here! He is not overrated! - DaWyteNight
This guy is a cornball - DaWyteNight
